ELCAF x Illustration Arts Fest

On October 28th ELCAF are flying to Singapore to take part in Illustration Arts Fest. The team will be joined by Jean Jullien, Richard McGuire, Isabel Greenberg and Mattias Adolfson to deliver a series of workshops, talks and panel discussions and celebrate Singapore’s very first festival dedicated illustration.

It’s incredibly exciting to be partnering with a fantastic team over in Singapore who are bringing together exhibitors and artists that create original content in styles and art forms not commonly seen in Asia. To find out about more about the festival, what’s going on, who’s taking part and how to get involved just check in here: www.illustrationartsfest.org

Thank you to all who came to ELCAF 2016 and made it an incredibly special three days. The exhibitor’s work blew us away, the talks inspired, workshops were packed, food was fantastic, beats kept us alive, and the audience, as ever, were warm and an utter joy to be with. ELCAF is the sum of all its parts. Another great year thanks to all involved!

‘I found ELCAF to be a perfect blend of dignified, thoughtful officiation of experimental/literary comics with the sort of high-energy, participatory frisson in which the younger folks like to truck — in short, “fun for the whole family,” and well worth one’s while.’ – Chris Ware, ELCAF artist-in-residence 2014
